Multimedia, AV Millions of music fans will be given free music downloads or money to compensate for flawed anti-piracy software on CDs from label Sony BMG. The final approval to the settlement for lawsuits against the music giant was granted by a US judge on Monday. Sony BMG was accused of using copy protection program on CDs that left computers vulnerable to hackers. The episode caused much embarrassment for the world's second largest music label.

This is totally pointless. I don't want a token offering of free music. I want them to see the light and change their approach to dealing with digital distibution. (And hence DRM)

I will gladly pay Sony a reasonable sum for decent music, but not when it means I get hosed in the process.
